Meghan Markle won't be getting paid for her Disney Plus voiceover role

Meghan Markle won’t be pocketing a paycheck for lending her voice to a brand new Disney documentary, so save your snide remarks.

The Duchess Of Sussex’s fee for her first post-royal gig – a documentary on elephants – will actually be going to the Elephants Without Borders charity, an organisation which is committed to conserving wildlife and protecting animals from poaching.

In January, it was revealed that Meghan had signed a voiceover deal with Disney in return for a donation towards the conservation charity, with the Disney Nature today confirming its upcoming release alongside another titled Dolphin Reef.

Sharing a trailer, debuting footage from both movies, the account tweeted: ‘Two new movies, two unforgettable journeys.

‘Start streaming Disneynature’s Elephant, narrated by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, and Disneynature’s Dolphin Reef, narrated by Natalie Portman, on April 3, only on #DisneyPlus.’

The trailer revealed: ‘Elephant, narrated by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, follows one family’s extraordinary 1000 mile journey across Africa on an adventure that will change their lives.’

Elephant will follow one African elephant named Shani and her son Jomo as they head off across the Kalahari Desert with their herd, and the movie will feature on Disney’s new streaming service Disney Plus.

It drops at the beginning of April and People reports the documentary is in partnership with Elephants Without Borders – a conservation project that Meghan and Prince Harry have worked closely with in the past.

Elephant is available to stream from 3 April on Disney Plus.
